RECRUITING NOW ! !

Complex Needs Support Workers (3-4 posts)

 
Job type: Full-time, Permanent
Hours of Work: 35 per week
Salary: £25,000 per annum

Our Without Walls service needs to support men and women with learning disabilities, some of whom require personal care. Female users of the service can only receive personal care from female workers, and for this reason we need to recruit at least two female Complex Needs Workers, plus at least one male.

Essential:

  • Full UK Driving licence (including manual vehicles) and the ability to complete MIDAS training in order to drive a work vehicle
  • The ability to complete and work according to specialist accredited training designed to de-escalate and manage challenging behaviour

Overall Purpose: To work within a small specialist team, providing high quality 2:1 care and support to service users in the community, in accordance with each support plan and comprehensive risk assessment.

The individuals we support in this group use complex and challenging behaviour as communication. Some will try to hit, kick, bite, scratch and otherwise physically harm people. This is not ‘ordinary’ support work: it is more psychologically and physically intense. This role requires someone who fully understands how and why this type of work is demanding and different, and who has the skills and commitment to work in a professional team focused on understanding and reducing complex and challenging behaviour.

Days: This service mainly operates during daytime hours, Monday to Friday, but sometimes during evenings and weekends. We need people who are flexible to be able to work evenings and weekends if required.

Please email an up to date CV to jobs@rathbonesociety.org.uk if you wish to apply.

Closing date: 2nd July 2021
